I have used this forum to promote the good, trash the bad, and downright berate the ugly when it comes to companies and products. For a change, this experience was better than good.

Living in a mobile home in south Texas presents a challenge: During the winter, the nights can be cold, but the days are usually pretty warm. I decided to purchase a space heater to take the chill out of the bedroom at night without having to run the central heating in the whole house. Since I basically live out of one bedroom, an electric space heater seemed the ideal solution. I tried a quartz radiant heater, but I found the heat highly directional, and the heater cycled between high and off, causing the room to cycle between chilly and hot. After doing user review research on the 'net, I decided to give the Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600) a try. I purchased the unit from Sylvane, because they had the best price anywhere.
And y'all know me, I spent a good time looking for the best price.

When I unpacked the unit I was dubious: This heater is pretty small in physical size. But after turning it on, the heater did not take long to bring the bedroom up to a comfortable 75 degrees. This is a large master bedroom with questionable insulation, close to 16' x 16', so I was surprised when this small unit maintained the room temperature without having to run continuously. The temperature outside was in the mid 30's and the thermostat on the central heat was below 55. The fan is very quiet, but obviously efficient. Unlike the quartz heater, the Vornado's continuously variable heat keeps the room warm without cycling between warm and cool, and without the annoying directionality. The remote thermostat ensures you are at the temperature you desire, and works very effectively. I prefer to sleep with the temperature in the 60s, and even in the large bedroom the Vornado can maintain that setting in low heat mode. I have only needed the high setting during the day on colder days to maintain 75.

The backlit touch screen on the top of the heater screen works well, with a user-friendly layout, although it is more convenient to use the remote. The only criticism I have is the remote should be re-designed to display the temperature you are setting while you are adjusting it with the remote. The remote only displays the current room temperature it is sensing; therefore, you have to look at the heater to see what the setting is.

Overall this is a wonderful product, and well worth the premium over the cost of a simple space heater. And for all your air purifier, heater or related products, give Sylvane a try. You won't be disappointed.

WAS LOOKING FOR A NEW HEATER HAD A VORNADO BEFORE SO WAS LOOKING TO UPGRADE. READ THE REVIEWS ON THE TVH600 WHICH DIDN'T READ WELL DUE TO THE VERY SAME TROUBLE I RAN INTO. GOT THE PRODUCT IN AND CONNECTED IT AND IT DIDN'T WORK (9AGH)&%%) I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE THOSE REVIEWS WHICH IS WHY I WENT AHEAD AND ORDERED ONE. I'D FIGURE THAT WITH THE BAD PRESS THE MANUFACTURER GOT THEY WOULD DO A SWEEPING AUDIT TO FIX THE PROBLEM GLITCH THEY ARE HAVING OF SHIPPING A PRODUCT THAT ISN'T WORKING WHEN RECEIVED BY THE CUSTOMER. I HAD TO RETURN THE PRODUCT LIKE SOME OTHER BUYERS DID. SO IF YOU DON'T WANT THE DELAY AND TROUBLE OF HAVING TO RETURN A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT DON'T GET THIS ONE.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT THEY WOULD DO A RECALL AND CHECK THE HEATER BEFORE IT LEAVES THE WAREHOUSE.

THEY EMAILED ME THE RETURN SHIPPER, SO THE RETURN WARRANTY IS GOOD. LET'S HOPE WHEN I GET THE"FIXED" ONE BACK IT WILL WORK AND WITH A 5 YEAR WARRANTY IT IS GOOD.

Vornado Heater for RV

By SUE MARCELINO

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Purchased heater for RV - early Spring to support furnaces. Have not used in RV yet but have used in bedroom at home to make sure unit works properly. Heats room quickly but we have not observed the unit stop heating once the set temp is reached. It continues to move warm air, we assume to maintain the temp, even though the room is quite warm. So, we are still experimenting. The thermostat is a couple degrees different than the fireplace remote in room, so figuring the set temp for a specific area will take some practice.

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Contemporary, nice-looking portable heater - heats quickly and efficiently; quiet. Only suggestion - housing plastic, tends to "rattle" at times.

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Works well, but it clicks all the time it is running - I thought this was supposed to be whisper quiet.

But it gets the job done

TVH600 Review

By Todd Martinez

Comments about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heater (TVH600):

Had this for 2 years. Use it a few times a week in the winter months (in North Cali). Best space heater I have ever owned (tried 5 different kinds the first winter here). Pricey, but worth it. Easily heats 300 sq ft. Have not tried to heat anything larger. As others have said, the remote does not work very well. Too bad because the idea of putting the thermostat on the remote is a good one.

The fan on this heater is rather weak. I expected it to put out a lot more heat.
